My Music Monday

A few weeks ago, Dith posted something on her FB page about naming your favourite song.  It turns out most people cannot.  I can't. 

I have many favourite songs, but I pressed to name only one, or a top choice I think would be impossible. 

I don't think I've ever done a My Music Monday pick of any of my top 10 songs.  

To be honest, I don't know what my top 10 songs of all time are. There are two or three I know would fall into that top 10, but most fall into the top 100 with absolutely no ranking.  I am 96.3% sure that the Guess Who's "Undun" is, however, in the top 10.  

Released in 1968 or 1969 (I suppose I could look it up), I clearly wasn't aware of it at the time since I was such a young young boy.   However, it is one of those songs I play often and will sing at the top of my lungs. 

Randy Bachman does a stellar job at the vocal and even the flute, which rarely ever belongs in any pop song, if you ask me. ....and I know you're not. 

Released before the music video, there is no real video to be had and attach.  There are some inferior live performances by the Guess Who during one of multiple reunion concerts 20+ years after their demise.  I just went with some fan kind of thing that shows graphics.  It's not about the video anyway - for this one, it's all about the music.
